I have been painting for a little while each evening after coming home from staying with Mom at the hospital. I love the color and it is completely changing the way this place looks.
I want to make an area in the living room that resembles a mudroom...just a stopping place right inside the front door. This modular home has no mudroom. This is kind of what I am thinking of...
This I can do. I have an old toy box bench that I could use and I have a shelf made very similar to this one that Mr. Fix-It built me a few years ago. I can paint them the same color and make them look like a set. This will have to be my next project once the walls are finished.
I will be bringing Mom home from the hospital tomorrow to live with me for a few months. We did get bad news again. Her cancer has spread into her lymph nodes. She will be going from Palliative Care to Hospice Care. I took today off and spent the morning with her at the hospital and then cleaned up her bedroom and got it all ready for her to come home tomorrow. There is no real space for any decorations in her room. We have her hospital bed, her wheel chair, a bedside potty chair, a dresser, a bench and chair for visitors. I try to make it as nice as possible because she has to spend so much time in there. Any suggestions for making it more pleasant, let me know.
By the way, cancer sucks.
